ASBU (Arab States Broadcasting Union) is going through a hectic period of preparations that started a few weeks ago with the annual meetings of its permanent committees and that will culminate with the holding of ASBU’s two key legislative bodies, namely the Executive Council (Jan. 11) and the General Assembly (Jan. 13-14).
Expected events are not limited to the two legislative bodies, but will mostly include:
- 7th meeting of the Standing Committee on Administrative, financial and Legal Affairs (Jan. 4-5),
- 104th meeting of the Executive Council (Jan. 11),
- 40th meeting of the General Assembly (Jan. 13-14),
- Professional debate on “Media at the time of COVID-19: Checks and balances”, (Jan. 14),
It is to be noted that the standing committees represent ASBU’s key consultative bodies. They help the organization achieve its mission. They submit their annual recommendations to the Executive Council and the General Assembly for validation.
